In 2016, I was invited to write a paper for the Evangelical Missiological Society (EMS) on the theme, Missions and the Local Church, and then to present the paper at the EMS regional meeting in Southern California. Later, I was invited to present the same paper at the group’s national meeting in Dallas.
This Fall (2017), the Society published my paper in their Occasional Bulletin. The paper looks at how any local church can effectively engage its congregation in global missions, using my experience as a pastor at one church as the primary example. Here’s a PDF of that issue: Occasional Bulletin Fall 2017; my article begins on page 19.
